Culinary Experiences

Sample the best of Kentucky

Mint Julep loves to share Kentucky’s best restaurants and iconic dishes with our tour guests.

Culinary experiences like live TV tapings of “Secrets of Bluegrass Chefs” are just one way to taste food from the region’s top cooks.

The Southern Supper Series of progressive food and cocktail tours explores eclectic neighborhoods, hidden gems and top chef’s creations from around the city. Guests visit three destinations for a course paired with a crafted cocktail at each stop, all based on a common theme. A Mint Julep tour leader will guide the fun, escorting guests on their dining journey and sharing local insight while they travel.

Cocktail classes and unique tastings are available periodically as elevated experiences or on your schedule with a custom tour.
